South Sudanese Talent Youth Awards

SSTYASouth Sudanese Talent Youth Awards is a nonprofit, nonpartisan and nonpolitical entertainment project set up by volunteering South Sudanese students in Uganda to learn and create entertaining environment for south Sudanese in Uganda.
The main objectives of the project are to promote social-economic, academic, welfare and reveal the talent among South Sudanese Youth as well as to create a mechanism that can contribute in the development of youth and South Sudan as a nation in Education, Music, Sports, Fashion, Acting and Sensitization.


SSTYA was found in 2015 by 8 South Sudanese Youth and has 13 delegates. The 13 delegates include 10 states and 3 regions representatives in order to cover the 28 states of south Sudan.

In an attempt to promote peace and impartiality among South Sudanese in Uganda, home and worldwide, SSTYA executive board nominates candidates in various categories two months earlier before the event to allow voting. Voting is done here on the website. The winner is announced on the day of the event and presented with an award. More so certificates of recognition are given to the other 3 runners up across all categories.
This happens annually, broadcast live on one of Ugandan’s selected local television and also a recorded event is availed on our YouTube channel.

The team is devoted to doing everything possible to achieve the target. However, we call upon all the promoters and players in their various walks of life to support us in making SSTYA a leading South Sudanese entertainment awarding foundation in Uganda.
